Plamondon Hawks, Notre Dame Wildcats sweep volleyball zones

The high school volleyball season is drawing to a close with some local teams punching their tickets to Provincials, others reaching the end of the road. 

Each level from 1A to 3A saw their boys and girls teams take gold medals. 

At 1A, the Ecole Plamondon Hawks came out victorious after the girls defeated Ecole des Beaux Lacs Attaque in the final, and the boys took the banner after winning in Vegreville. 

The girls will go to Picture Butte High School for Provincials, while the boys will head back to St. Mary’s Catholic School for Provincials.

The 2A Zones titles went to Notre Dame High School in Bonnyville. 

The girls team remains with just one loss on the season, and victorious in each tournament they attended this year. They went straight sets in the semi-final against Lamont High and in the gold medal match vs Vegreville Comp. 

They will head to Claresholm for Provincials.

The boys hosted zones on Friday and Saturday. The lone team that could beat the Wildcats in the round-robin, the Two Hills Tigers, were their opponent in the gold medal match. 

It went three sets with the Wildcats gutting out a 25-15, 24-26, 15-10 win for the Zones banner. But Two Hills will also go to Provincials because of a wildcard berth in the northeast zone.
